    well, he develops his own photos (and they look damn sweet and kinda awesome ramshackle that way) and I can't because I don't have a darkroom, so he inspires me to ether find a darkroom to use or install one.

    AFAIK Pick doesn't do any developing (could be wrong)

    he had some mussed up B&W film pics he developed himself of a band and and he said he thought they looked terrible but I thought they looked awesome. I am pretty sure those were picks.

    I do, but I'm nowhere near as proficient as you are.

    Haha Labbet. I think you got me confused.
    I have posted shots from film that I've developed myself, but they weren't done nearly as well as H4Z3Y.

    Mine were all scratched up and shit - although that's mainly from poor care of the negs.

    I strongly suggest you make your own tiny darkroom, you can do it for pretty cheap. And for developing you don't even need a darkroom.
    I've been developing my own film and printing my own prints for 3 or 4 years now, you feel so much more connected to each print.

    Except it does get expensive to do it a lot, just a warning.

    That's fine, you won't need to spend as much on raw materials like paper and chemicals if you don't shoot as often.
    You could just buy the necessary film processing chemicals (I usually go with with Ilford), and a developing bag and canister at first.
    If you enjoy developing your own film, then you could get all the paper chemicals and a cheap enlarger and set up a little darkroom.

    Edited:

    Actually maybe you'd want to do it the other way around.
    It'd be harder and more expensive to set up the darkroom straight away, but printing is the really fun part.
    You could always just get your rolls developed at a shop.

    Are film scanners an alternative to enlargers? or is that something completely different?

    Oh yeah I guess if you just want to develop your own film, then you could scan it and do the post processing and printing (if you want to) digitally.
    Enlargers are necessary if you want to make your own prints though. I really love printing, but it might just be because of the places I print in, I go to my school's darkroom during many of my free blocks even if I don't have my paper or anything to print, and at home I spend a lot of time in my basement.

    Edited:

    Printing is very fun, and the challenge makes it even more rewarding when you finally get that perfect print.

    I'm not bashing photoshop or other digital editors, but it's not really the same when you can just ctrl+z, and you don't have to work and wait for any minute changes you make. It's so satisfying to print.

    Recently I've been really inspired by Salvador Dali's photography. I'm wanting to move towards a more cluttered, surrealist style.

    I usually don't edit my film pictures, especially not in photoshop. I'll try some developing in a dark bag and some small bottles of chemicals at first, just to try it out. If I dig it, I'll have to clear out my closet and turn it into a darkroom, because that's the only place I can (no basement, no darkroom at school)

    You don't necessarily need to clean everything up as long as you can find a good system to set it up efficiently when you want to.
    My basement isn't always a darkroom, but I can take a few of these boards out from under the couch and place them at a few certain places that I figure out, and then place the chemicals out.

    Also about the editing thing, when you print you are always editing the image, because there actually isn't a single default way that the picture actually looks. There are so many factors to depend on like the exposure time, the filters, the type of paper, the length in the developer, other techniques like dodge/burn or even weirder like solarizing or double exposing a sheet.

    well, it sounds like an enlarger is the way to go. also, I will have to clean out my closet. you haven't seen my closet, its packed full of junk

    He's kind of a staple in the world of bike photography. He shoots nearly everything on 35mm.





    He also has an eye for architectural type stuff.

    Samples:






    The way he manipulates light to his advantage is mind blowing, and his compositions are amazingly compelling.

    Hoping to go to Pategonia with him on one of his photo-tours trekking in the wild.
